We’re listening!

At past conferences you have told us that you not only value the great education and thought provoking discussions at the formal sessions at Congress. You have also said that networking is important. (We’re a community, after all!)

We know it is not always easy to simply walk up to someone and start talking. Last year, I was talking to one young professional who expressed hesitance to introduce herself to an experienced executive she wanted to meet. After introduced them, they ended up having great discussion and the more senior of the two also said she appreciated the introduction.

The Congress Committee wanted to figure out a way to enable many more such introductions and decided to introduce a new door opener.

Our new name badges will clearly show your name but also space at the bottom where you can fill in.
“Ask me about…”
1.
2.
3.

What will your three topics be? They can be serious, or something you’re passionate about.

Here are some I am thinking about.
Ask me about…
1. Engagement marketing
2. Cause-consumers
3. My passion for chocolate

We are looking forward to seeing you on Monday! It’s going to be a great conference!
